    Wow! I actually missed a few days of being on here. I haven't taken anything interesting but then I read something on this Photography School web site on taking candles. I had two candles I bought before Christmas and thought hmmmm I should use these. So here ya go.

    There are three variations. One with the candles closer together, two with them spread farther apart and showing different focuses.

    As you critique, give some ideas on what would be nicer to see as far as candle pics. Give me some ideas. I would like to try them and repost.

    pretty good but I think you should try shooting only one candle. Good example is the last one since I see the front candle but then I see the light in the back and my eyes are drawn to that. but overall pretty good.

    Good good! I like! Should I maybe have something around or behind the one candle? Or just it alone?

    I think you should have it alone. Or you could also try having some spooky objects in the background, but on that you should get more info from Chiller lol

    Great shots not bad at all. Not really sure how to improve them. They almost have a mirror type effect to them.

    To tell you the truth, not to beat myself up but there is really almost nothing special about these, but I just like how sharp they turned out and how I captured the flame. I would like to do something creative with it. Having spooky things in the background does sound neat. I will be brain storming on what I could use.

    I dont know what you have around but you may want to consider using the candle light to illuminate something with a face but keep the candle out of the frame.
